AFED Chairman’s Message

I wish to welcome each and every player and officials numbering to about 400 from 15 different cities around the world who will be converging in Nairobi, Kenya commencing from 22nd to 29th December 2017 to participate in what is expected to be the most exciting, interactive and competitive sports festival dubbed, “Furaha Sports Festival”. (Furaha meaning Happy) involving six sporting games.

The participation fee is subsidized purposely to encourage and enable students and youth of our Community to participate in this biennial AFED Sports Festival.

I am pleased to recognize and also appreciate the facilitators of this momentous Festival, this has been possible through the esteemed support, cooperation and efforts of the Shia Asna Asheri Jamaat (SAAJ) of Nairobi along with their devoted and passionate members of the Furaha Sports Festival Organizing Committee – Thank you very much.

It is on record that out of the 17 Sports Festivals organized by AFED since its inception in 1984, the Furaha Sports Festival will be the 5th Sports Festival being held in Nairobi, Kenya, the first one was held in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania in 1984.

I wish also to commend the AFED Sports Council Chairman, Alhaj Mohamedhussein Somji and his team for their deep dedication and the zeal towards the Festival.

My warm greetings to all the participants and our Community members with a famous Kiswahili word Karibu. I wish all the participants successful and enjoyable Festival.

I am thankful to the donors and well-wishers for their support and cooperation in this Festival, Jazaka’allah Kheir.
